The many professional artists – painters, potters, printmakers, sculptors, textile artists, furniture & basket makers, jewellers and photographers, who work on the Cowal peninsula in the midst of the beautiful Argyll countryside, open their doors to visitors on these four days - 22 to 25 Sep 2017 - (and at other times by appointment).
Studios are varied. There are perhaps a few artists in garrets, but most of us work in whatever space we can find – purpose built studios, adapted garages, specially built sheds, cupboards, kitchen tables, spare rooms, back rooms, huts, barns .....often with views to die for.
The art is as varied as the venues – intricate small scale jewellery, paintings in miniature or on a grand scale, pots and sculpture, and whole gardens filled with installations. You are sure to be surprised. See Events Page for Workshops & Demonstrations.
There are also two galleries to visit. The Creggans Inn at Strachur exhibits work from each participating artist and the Dunoon Burgh Hall Gallery hosts our Guest Artist Exhibition. For 2015, we had two Invited Artists, both textile artists. See the Events page for details, as they become available. In 2016 we had a fine selection of work from ArtMap as our Guest Artists.
